Interface 2013: Creative and Critical Approaches in the Digital Humanities
The digital humanities explores how emerging digital forms of scholarly inquiry and new ways to assess and to organize knowledge transform the creative and critical methods humanities scholars use to approach their objects of study. Thoughtful in play, interdisciplinary in engagement, utopian in spirit, transformational in intent, digital humanists “imagine new couplings and scalings that are facilitated both by new models of research practice and by the availability of new tools and technologies” (The Digital Humanities Manifesto 2.0).
The goal of this conference is to highlight the variety of digital approaches, both creative and critical, praxis and theory-based, that scholars are bringing to bear on traditional concerns across the humanities. In addition to traditional conference presentations, organizers are planning a number of workshops on game development and digital tool exploration. A selection of papers may be published in an edited collection following the conference.
Possible topics may include:
- Game studies
Keynotes: Dr. Geoffrey Rockwell, University of Alberta, Professor in the Humanities Computing Program and Department of Philosophy, and Dr. Stephanie Boluk, Vassar College, Media Studies postdoctoral fellow
